One of the strange types of complaints we receive from our customers is "The system was working fine till yesterday, I had shut down the system and it is not booting now". Strange as it may sound the common feature of these support requests included burnt motherboards, non-functional PCI Card slots and sometimes burnt Ethernet cards. One common factor in such cases was that these customers had Asianet Dataline as their internet service.

Asianet's cable line is prone to power surges that could burn your modem, ethernet card and if you are unlucky motherboard, processor and even monitor. The possible reason for this is that they depend a lot on KSEB transmission posts to support their cable infrastructure and they do not have surge protection devices at the customer side of the cables. Whatever be the reason there is a risk of power surges damaging the computer connected through Asianet Dataline.

Asianet themselves confirm this issue by specifically requesting users to not connect through the USB or on-board ethernet card and instead use a PCI ethernet card to connect. Following are some precautionary steps you should be taking to protect your PC if you are an Asianet Dataline subscriber

  1. Always connect to Asianet Dataline using a PCI Ethernet card. Spending an additional 200-300 bucks is worth it.
  2. DONOT connect to Asianet Dataline using the USB port
  3. DONOT connect to Asianet Dataline using the onboard ethernet card (built-in network card)
  4. Physically disconnect your Asianet Dataline cable from the modem when you are not using internet.
  5. Physically disconnect your Asianet Dataline cable from the modem when there is rain and/or thunder and/or lightning

Thanks in advance. webmaster access_time 19 Jul 2019 - 07:31 In reply to I want to buy a used Computer by Anonymous (not verified) The easiest way to get hold of a used computer is from your friends. If any of your friends are planning to buy new PCs then you can get hold of their old computer. Both of you will get a good bargain out of the deal as you are taking the middleman out of the deal. If you can't find anybody who is planning to upgrade then your best bet would be your local computer store or craigslist. Had you been in Trivandrum we could have arranged a used PC for you :) Pagination Current page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9 … Next page Next › Last page Last » Add new comment

Intel has been announcing massive price slashes for its processors and motherboards since January 2007. In spite of this AMD based systems still maintain a comfortable lead over the Intel based systems. The price difference used to be around Rs. 3,000 around a year back but it has fallen drastically during the last one year. An AMD Sempron based system can be bought for around Rs. 13,500 while an Athlon X2 costs around Rs. 14,600. The Intel counterparts Dual Core and Core 2 Duo based systems costs around Rs. 15,500 and Rs. 18,500 respectively. Computers Hardware Leave a reply Your email address will not be published.
